My Story

I found out I had leukemia because I fell on a coffee table and hurt myself. My tooth got knocked loose and never healed, so the doctors thought something else must be wrong. They were right. I had to take a lot of medicine for a long time, but I got better. Some kids I met didn't get better. That makes me sad. When I was sick, lots of different people helped me and my family. I'm shaving my head for St. Baldrick's Day so kids that are sick now can get help, too.
